Mr President, on that score the greatest claptrap has come from the Greens, who want to close down Australia’s coal industry and put thousands of Australians out of work. The most inane policy I have ever heard announced by any parliamentarian in this country was Senator Brown saying we should shut down Australia’s coal industry. What an extraordinary, unbelievable statement, and I hope the Greens pay the price for that at the next federal election.
